I'm running a Leupold scope, and it's close now, so hopefully the Warne rings still allow me to run the factory bolt handle.

CZ makes a nice rifle, but it's little things like the bolt handle and ring mounting that makes them frustrating. Why build a rifle that requires a scope, then design a bolt handle that makes it a challenge to mount a scope?!


I hear that. I was having a heck of a time with my 455. The bolt would rub the scope, and high rings would put the scope way too high. Finally took an angle grinder to the bolt and shaved some metal off where it was rubbing. Then sanded it smooth and re-blued it. Works like a charm!!

What irritates me is that you pay $400-$700 for these CZ rifles, some which don't have iron sights, then you have to order their special bolt handle for scope applications. Why the heck don't they just put the bolt handles for scopes on rifles without iron sights from the get go?! Marketing/money gimmick, obviously, but it's still irritating.

Not a thing if you need high rings.

I run Warn med's....QD and Fixed....with zero problems.

Talley makes a nice set of split rings for their rimfires too.



Very helpful pic. Guessing these are all 40mm objectives?

I hear what youre saying. A high bolt equals high rings. About 6-8 months after I got my CZ I had the factory stock altered and had an adjustable cheek piece hardware installed. That mad ea huge difference in shooting comfort with the higher mounted stock.
Id post a picture of it but Im not real picture posting intrenet savy, lol
I do enjoy my CZ 527 LH and my 452 LH rifles.

Being new to CZ's I very well could be misunderstood on this but I thought it was only the older 527's had the bolt handle hitting the scope issue/s and all the new 527's that were sold in the last couple years had the new/improved bolt handle, yes???

Both of my CZ 527's are the newer versions and neither of mine are even close to hitting the scope with the bolt handle.

I, also, had to put an adjustable cheek piece on one of my 527's because with using the DIP Inc. picatinny rail and even the lowest rings I could get, it was still a little to high and I couldn't get good cheekweld. The adj. cheek piece I used is from Defensive Edge Rifles and is just a very simple inexpensive light weight setup that'll work on just about any stock with a straight comb, like the CZ's.

I have the one from Defensive Edge Rifles on multiple different guns.

Pac-Nor.....17FB....it has a few other mods too.
It's definitely my favorite rifle but that little carbine's growing on me.

With CZ nothings a given but that should be the case.

My old 527 pictured with med Warns needed a Calhoon bolt handle where as my new 527 Carbine clears the bolt handle wearing med Warns. Both are Leupold scopes with the exact same ocular bell dia..
